Example sentences for: daz

How can you use “daz” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • DAZ and DAZL are expressed in the nucleus and cytoplasm of primordial germ cells and spermatogonia, and in the cytoplasm of meiotic spermatocytes [ 6 10 ] . BOULE is expressed later, in the cytoplasm of pachytene spermatocytes [ 5 ] . Genetic and biochemical studies suggest a role for the DAZ family in the regulation of mRNA translation.

  • The family includes the Y-linked DAZ genes that are present only in great apes and old world monkeys [ 3 ] , and the autosomal DAZL1 (DAZ-like 1) and BOULE genes [ 4 5 ] in all mammals.

  • In an attempt to elucidate the function of the DAZ gene family and to understanding the mechanisms of its action, we used a yeast two-hybrid system to isolate two human genes encoding DAZ associated proteins (DAZAPs) [ 14 ] . One of them, DAZAP1, is expressed predominantly in testes.

  • Deletion of the DAZ genes is found in about 10% of infertile males with idiopathic azoospermia [ 2 ] , and disruption of Dazl1 causes infertility in both male and female mice [ 6 ] . Mutations in the DAZ family members of Drosophila [ 7 ] , C. elegans [ 8 ] , and Xenopus [ 9 ] also affect the fertility in either males, females, or both sexes.

  • RNA-binding proteins have been found to participate in many cellular functions, including RNA transcription, pre-mRNA processing, mRNA transport, localization, translation and stability [ 20 ] . A role for the DAZ family in the regulation of mRNA translation is supported by lines of circumstantial evidence, including the association of DAZL with polyribosomes [ 12 ] . The absence of DAZAP1 from polyribosomes indicates that it is not directly involved in protein synthesis.
